What are NHL fans saying about William Nylander being traded to the Colorado Avalanche?

I like the trade. Makes sense for both teams. I think the Avalanche would prefer a center, but the trade gives the Leafs a defeseman with great upside.

I can’t see the Avs trading Byram. But I am sure something can be worked out with the first round pick being offered.

As a Leaf fan, I rather see the team target Noah Hanifin for Nylander. But I would also accept this trade.

  1. Bo Byrum is a better commodity and contract for the Avalanche right now. Plus the Avalanche have their own cap problems. Keep Nylander and the 10 mil contract. Avalanche have to get Mikko and Devon signed for next season before they take any more contracts questionable contracts.

  2. Trading a proven 80-90 point 40 goal scorer for a 22 year old d man with a history of concussions who’s never even played a full season in the NHL. What are you smoking?

  3. Been wanting him to get traded to Colorado for a couple of years now. Just not for Byram. They can have Girard, a middle six forward, prospects, and picks

  4. Please make this trade.

    Matthews is signed. Marner will be signed next offseason. We can’t have Nylander on the team at $10 million a year.
